The Geneva Centre is co-organizing with the UNOG Library a discussion on Leadership in Modern Multilateralism

By Geneva Centre
GENEVA, Mar 8 2019 (IPS-Partners)

The Geneva Centre for Human Rights Advancement and Global
Dialogue has partnered with the UNOG Library in the organization of
the upcoming Library event entitled Leadership in Modern
Multilateralism.

This debate will discuss the topic of multilateralism as the
most logical approach to the challenges the world is facing in our
time of fast-paced globalisation. Despite mounting nationalism and
criticism, there is no valid alternative to international
cooperation.

This debate will explore the principles and ideas underpinning
multilateralism against a complex background of climate change, the
rise of technology and the future of the global economy.
Furthermore, the panel will underscore the role of eminent
personalities who shaped international affairs and the changes in
the nature of leadership in the 21st century, with the rise of
modern multilateralism.
